radial head fracture

I fractured the radial head of my right arm while traveling. I had a screw and 4 pins put in it - in an operation in thailand. I am still not home and there is a communication barrier between myself and Dr. myself and surgon and myself and physyiotherapist - with this information can you tell me what the likely hood of full recovery is? it has been 3 months since the initial break - I have been doing physio everyday and recently switched to every other day - I still can't strighten my arm all the way or touch my shoulder - I can't fully rotate either way. am I going to be like this forever????
